Brains of Be Informed​

Real engineers: that’s the best description of Be Informed’s developers. They created the engine that’s the Be Informed platform. Some of them go way back, to the time when our technology saw first light. In 2003 the computerization of semantics was researched in collaboration with the University of Amsterdam. The assumption was that both programming languages and legal texts are based upon logic. Therefore both could be interpreted by modern computing platforms. This led to the development of the Be Informed platform.

Our developers used declarative programming techniques, which evolved in the following years to offer an agile accelerator for any digital development: automated processes, customer journeys, compliance and orchestration. This is something we are truly proud of. Each and every day we are motivated to come up with solutions that serve our customers best.
